I am still not able to  make a image a JButton after all the help in previous post.

Thanks to my poor Java Knowledge.

Can some one please help more on this ? May be some little code snippet.

I am trying to make a image act as a JButton and not to insert a image in a button.

Thanks !

Thanks everyone.

@CEHJ, Please find the pic attached. Or you can just use any pic.

I have to make a lot of buttons using different pics.

you can simply use JButton/JLabel and set this as icon with empty border and it will just seem like an image in the UI!

Try the following
import java.awt.*;

import java.awt.event.*;



import java.io.*;



import java.util.*;



import javax.swing.*;





public class F extends JFrame {

    private void setGui() {

	try {

	    setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);

	    Container cp = getContentPane();

	    cp.setLayout(new FlowLayout());

	    JButton b = new JButton();

	    b.setIcon(new ImageIcon("pic.png"));

	    b.setBorder(null);

	    b.setContentAreaFilled(false);

	    cp.add(b);

	    b.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {

		public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {

		    System.out.println("Clicked");

		}

	    });

	} catch (Exception e) {

	    e.printStackTrace();

	}

    }



    public static void main(String[] args) {

	try {

	    SwingUtilities.invokeAndWait(new Runnable() {

		public void run() {

		    F f = new F();

		    f.setGui();

		    f.pack();

		    f.setVisible(true);

		}

	    });

	} catch (Exception e) {

	    e.printStackTrace();

	}

    }

}

An empty border isn't sufficient actually
